Today, Halloween franchise star Jamie Lee Curtis took to Instagram to announce that Halloween Kills will release in theaters and on the Peacock streaming platform on October 14. You can find the announcement video on Curtis’ Instagram here.
In addition to the announcement from Curtis, Universal Pictures also unveiled a new poster for the film.
Laurie Strode will face off against Michael Myers for a terrifying climax in Halloween Ends this October. Horror icon Curtis returns as Laurie Strode for the final time across more than four decades of appearing in the role — once again performing as horror’s first “final girl”. The film description follows:
“Four years after the events of last year’s ‘Halloween Kills,’ Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing writing her memoir. Michael Myers hasn’t been seen since. Laurie, after allowing the specter of Michael to determine and drive her reality for decades, has decided to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life. But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell; ‘The Hardy Boys,’ ‘Virgin River’), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control, once and for all.”
Halloween Ends co-stars returning cast Will Patton as Officer Frank Hawkins, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace and James Jude Courtney as The Shape. The film is directed by a returning creative team consisting of David Gordon Green directing from a screenplay by Paul Brad Logan, Chris Bernier, Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and is, of course, based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill.
Halloween Ends is produced by Malek Akkad, Jason Blum and Bill Block, and executive produced by John Carpenter, Jamie Lee Curtis, Danny McBride, David Gordon Green, Ryan Freimann, Ryan Turek, Andrew Golov, Thom Zadra and Christopher H. Warner.
